Taking a Ride on the Magic School Bus

Who: Inspirit worked with the Georgia Tech Center for Integrating Science, Mathematics and Computing team, and some teachers from the Georgia Department of Education to design an AP Biology VR curriculum for grades nine and ten. This was done keeping in mind that most students have cell phones.

How: We began by identifying topics that required visual or spatial understanding to help students better visualize and understand difficult concepts. We made 8 animated VR videos transporting the user to the inside of a cell. The videos covered topics ranging from basic concepts like cell composition, and DNA structure to more advanced and complex topics like transcription and translation (protein synthesis).
